The Radiation Biology and Molecular Radiation Oncology section aims at providing a platform for biological research and its translation into clinical radiation oncology. This includes innovative studies on the cellular responses towards ionizing irradiation and their underlying mechanisms, technical approaches, identification of biomarkers, and experimental therapy approaches. Submission of studies involving animal models and/or primary, patient-derived samples/material is particularly encouraged. Space is also provided for review contributions on timely topics, as well as invited key reviews from renowned experts. Thus, the Radiation Biology and Molecular Radiation Oncology section addresses current, timely and cutting-edge research and reviews about biologically relevant issues in radiation oncology, while offering a fast review process and broad outreach.
